Semi off-topicish but what car/truck/suv do you guys drive and is it easy to get all your gear in?

I kinda want a car because outside of fishing and other /out/ shit I have no need for a truck, been driving a truck for years though. But I cannot even imagine trying to fit all my shit into a regular economy car. Multiple surf rods, pier/beach cart, 3-4 tackle boxes, etc.

Maybe thought about getting an old ass station wagon or some shit.
get a 4runner or subaru forester if u dont want a truck
I bought this for my shimano stradic ci4, did I fuck up? I've never owned a megabass rod before
imo you should never buy a rod you havnt at least felt in your hand before. That being said I don’t think it will be a bad rod. How good? I doubt anyone here or many people in general would be able to tell you much about that rod. I have my ci4+ paired with a loomis bronze back and that’s my favorite spinning setup I’ve ever used

Truck is the best but you're probably bringing too much shit if your tackle boxes won't fit in a car.

I see your point, but my envy of the German economy discourages agreement. You lack wilderness to go truly /out/ - but 90% of the time you live in a tidy and generally prosperous environment.

t. My country is 50.3% forest, but economic activity, apart from farming that now takes 10 times less hands than 100 years ago, outside of the capital is non-existent, so it's either move to the city or be poor-ish.

Anyone knows how much water an autopsy system consumes?
Heh, the "for Dummies" series of books has,

Hobby Farming for Dummies
Urban Gardening for Dummies
Organic Gardening for Dummies
Farming for Dummies
Farmer Simulator Modding for Dummies
Raising Beef Cattle for Dummies
Raising Chickens for Dummies
Building Beehives for Dummies

Seriously though, there's no real "beginners" thing when it comes to growing crops or raising vegetables except for the amount of stuff you grow or raise. A beginner needs to know the same info as an, "expert," since the needs of the plant or animal is the same for both. You'll need to research each individual plant or animal you wish to grow or raise. That way you know specifically how to take care of it properly.

I see a lot of clothes talked about on /ck/; boots, jackets, pants... but I never see belts talked about. I'm curious to what belts you guys use, and for what recreation. For instance, bushcrafters might be leather belts because they're able to strop their knives. The trade off is a heavier belt for a multi-purpose use. Alternatively, hikers might use some kind of stretchy synthetic belt because they're lighter, where hiking is more of a weight-conservative activity.

Post your belts, and what your main activities are.

Go to your local tack shop. Have them cut you a belt from the thickest harness leather that will fit in the loops. Neetsfoot oil every 6 months.

What turns into candyass?
I would drop the sugar. Flour has marginally less calories than sugar, but it contains protein.
You can also knead the flour with water to make breads. Add some salt too. Then you just need some condiments, eg jams, with high sugar content to slather on your lardy flatbreads. You could swap the lard for butter for a little more flavour.

If you brought sugar you can approximate cookie dough with some cinnamon/vanilla and perhaps coco chips. Not a bad meal.

Flour/salt/sugar/butter is 80% of 80% baking recipes. There's a lot you can do.
The indian inspired spice powder, or the (japanese) stuff?
But yeah, both could be worth trying.
But still wondering about adding proteins.

24 is sill young. It’s also the first year my brain turned fully on. Great age.

I was bored, and I was curious how good a wood fire stove is, so I made myself one from old pot. Had some old screws to use as legs, two bbc needles & grid from disposable grill.

Managed to boil water in 5 min. with windy 10C outside, so the experiment went pretty well, I'd say. Not sure if I'll take it for a
trip, though. While light, it does take up some space, and I do like my Esbit pocket kitchen a lot.

May I ask: how long did it take you to fabricate this contraption?
About 2 hours with drill & file*, I guess. Alluminium is easy to work with.

*lol at what the english word for that tool is.
>While light, it does take up some space
you can build a foldable one instead to save space. while it'll be still bigger than an esbit cooker, youwon't have to carry your fuel anymore, which saves quite a bit of space on longer trips.
>you won't have to carry your fuel anymore
OP here. That was actually what got me interested in fire stoves - not having to carry fuel tablets/being able to make due without them Call me paranoid),
but on the other hand, being able to use fuel tablets, should I have some, in the same cooking tool.
I think I'll get rid of the handles....
Well done OP, yes snap them off

Soon you'll reach second step and camp with a multitool and a dogbowl to be used as a pan on an open fire

Great job tho keep it up

Hello guys which type of mushroom is this ?
Is it edible and can I somehow make more ?

Only one way to be sure, eat a handful and post results if you don't die.

It could be useful if you mentioned what climate and part of the world you found them in.

>Is it edible and can I somehow make more ?
Take a small piece of the mushroom and put it in your mouth like chewing tobacco. Leave it in there for about 10-15 minutes. If your mouth starts burning spit it out it's poisonous. If not, enjoy your meal.

It's some kind of Agaricus. Make sure the base of the stem isn't yellow and doesn't turn yellow, those are poisonous. To find out exactly which kind you have you have to take a spore print. Cut off the stem, put the cap on a piece of paper, and cover it with an upside down cup to prevent air currents. Pick it up a day later and you should have a chocolate brown print.
My great grandmother used to grow all kinds of mushrooms and knew a lot about them, I wish I could have learned from her about it
>scratch it
if it turns yellow= no eat
>smell it
if it smells like ink= no eat
if it smells like cultivated mushrooms (but stronger) like the ones in the store its edible
its not deadly poisonous bcuz they are full white or greenish

leaving someting behind by accident is alot different to being some wog who grabs anything shiney he can get away with, that would be akin to taking it out of your room while you are still occupying it and I guarrantee you a hotel takes that very seriously.

>an industrial egg
Pretty sure the output is more than that.
On the one hand it seems attractive to live this life, but even the tenth of an acre setup would require a massive amount of perpetual labor. If I were to calculate the cost of setting up that operation and working it, vs investing that cost and buying food from specialized producers at low cost due to economies of scale, I can get more by doing less the modern way.
Still a neat idea though, and perhaps the economics of it are not the primary factor for many people, and that's fair.
